The 11th annual Scotiabank Feast of Fortune gala hosted by St. Paul’s Foundation has raised $900,115 for much-needed equipment at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital.
“Proceeds from the 2018 Scotiabank Feast of Fortune gala will directly touch many of us because our fundraising focus is breast cancer,” said Sing Lim Yeo, gala founder and Senior Vice-President of Vancouver’s Royal Pacific Realty Group.
Funds raised will go towards buying a state‐of‐the‐art mammography machine that harnesses a new technology, tomosynthesis, to create a 3-D image.
Last year, Mount Saint Joseph Hospital performed more than 15,000 breast imaging studies and the hospital supports approximately 20 per cent of breast cancer patients in British Columbia.
The centre provides breast cancer patients with a full continuum of care including screening, diagnosis, and surgery, all in one location, and operates the largest breast reconstruction program in the province.
The Scotiabank Feast of Fortune gala welcomed more than 650 guests from Vancouver’s diverse community, including the real estate industry.
Sing Yeo has received numerous awards for his volunteer work, including the Order of British Columbia, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s REALTORS Care® Award and the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Gold Award for fundraising efforts. For over 30 years, his efforts have helped raise more than $20 million for a range of charitable causes such as the Tapestry Foundation for Healthcare, the Chinese Cultural Centre and S.U.C.C.E.S.S.
Congratulations, Sing Yeo. Senior Vice-President, Royal Pacific Realty Group.
